OK, sorry, but this story just cried out for that headline:
The announcement was made Monday by the opera's incoming General Manager Gerard Mortier.
The opera, "The Perfect American," is based on a recent novel by the American-born writer Peter Stephan Jungk. It will open City Opera's 2012-2013 season and honor the composer's 75th birthday.
Mortier scrapped the traditional 2008-09 season while the company's home at Lincoln Center undergoes a $200 million renovation. Instead of staged operas, the company is presenting concert performances around the city.
As part of the 2009-10 season, City Opera will present Glass' "Einstein on the Beach," which was first staged in New York in 1992. The season will focus on 20th-century works.
The story of Disney in "The Perfect American" is told by a fictional Austrian cartoonist who worked for Disney in the 1940s-50s.
